4gb ram not detected

My machine does not recognize my full 4gb of ram. Recently it was running on 3gb ram which suddenly dropped to 2.5 after i moved some hardware around. Now i have installed 4gb and still only 2.5 is recognized. Help appreciated.

    I have 4 x 1GB sticks. I can place any 2 in any 2 slots and it will work fine and I have full access to the 2GB when I place all 4 is when it goes down to 2.5. Will my video card, Nvidia 8600GT 512mb be causing this?

    I have same problem but with 2x2GB RAM. I changed the slots with all variants but still 3GB. Individually inserted both of them were 2 GB so not mislabelled or something. Can this MB support 4GB really?

Hey
First of all kindly specify what how many rams slots and how many ram chips are there
like 1 X 4GB or 2 X 2 GB
Generally,
with RAM there can be a few problems
1) the frequency of ram whichmotherboard supports might be less than the freq at which the ramyou are puttin works, hence in this case RAM wont work on this motherboard and ull have to get the RAM replaced
2) some motherboards donot support a 1 x 4 GB RAM where as they might support a 2 X 2 RAM (ifyou do have 2 mem slots for ram)
and then there is the mosttrivial problem of the slot not being clean or arm not being putproperly, i can think of ne other reason for the ram not workingproperly..
For further assistance feel free to mail me at

cheers
Kushal

W7 64 bit pro


These are the specs, but I don't see 64 Bits support. Hence it must be running 32 bit and Windows 32 Bit has a 3GB limitation. Furthermore, even if it did recognize it. Your applications must be written to utilize more RAM. For instance I have 16GB and never seen the usage go more 3GB.

My asus m3n78-em motherboard does not boots with 6 gb ddr2(3 chips of 2 gb) ram it works properly with 4 gb ram(2 chips of 2 gb) i dont know what to do it used to work properly before but its not working...


This board has a dual channel memory. To function correctly both channels must be identical otherwise , as you can witness, it chokes. To put it simply you must put either 2 identical sticks of memory or 4 - it can't run on 3.

Installed 4 G of RAM. Installed Windows 7. Only 3 G RAM Usable


Hi,
To recognize more than 3GB of RAM you will need a 64 bit version of the operating system. If you install Windows 7 32 bit (normal for most users) you will only see 3.
You should have both versions of Windows 7 (32bit and 64 bit) on your installation disk. However you will need a 64 bit capable processor to install it. Otherwise 3GB of RAM for a 32 bit operating system is more than enough.

Ram again


Go to your google search bar and type in SIW, download and run it. In the left hand column, scroll down to the hardware section and click on memory. It will tell you how much you have and how much your motherboard is capable of handling.
Some boards like my Dell 8400 will take 4GB and use it all but the motherboard only recognizes 3GB, so if your unsure you might be able to go to the computer manufacturer website, go to support, type in the info for the computer you have and they should tell you what that board is capable of.
Hope this helps, good luck

OS not showing full RAM


Hi Shibbymusic, as with most Asus boards if not all! The MB
A8N-E does not show all of your 4GB memory. See this FAQ;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A8N-E&os=17
Like you, I too have 4GB of memory.
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe w/4GB memory only see's 3GB
The bios displays 3GB during boot up & so does windows XP 32bit.
You might want to think about upgrading to 64bit os.
Updating your bios should help as well.
(See A8N-E Bios version 1010); http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-E&SLanguage=en-us

Thank you for using fixya!

4gb on msi k8n neo-4 F


Hello pejegess,

If your OS is reading the 4Gb, it will be running the 4GB even if the bios is only seeing 3GB. You may just need to update the firmware on your motherboard but I suggest that you just leave it as is since the OS is recognizing the 4GB.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

Maximum RAM not achiveable for KT4V


What Operating System and revision are you running?
I don't believe that XP 32bit (not sure about 64) will recognize 3GB of RAM, but Vista will as long as your MoBo (Mother Board) supports it or possibly even more than.
My Asus MoBo will utilize 4GB but Vista 32bit will only utilize 3.48GB or so, and Vista 64bit will take up to 8GB if the MoBo will.
Let us know what O.S. you're running?
